combing the scene for pieces of evidence in an effort to put the bombs back together. nbc news chief justice correspondent pete williams has the very latest. >> reporter: investigators have begun the process of recovering tiny pieces of the bombs to learn how they were made. they say it appears the devices were assembled inside pressure cooker pots similar to this one, packed with bbs, ball bearings and nails. pressure cookers have been used for decades in terror bombings. instructions for making them appear on the internet, including just last month in an al qaeda magazine "inspire." investigators say the explosion in boston was smokeless powder, gunpowder like this available at sporting goods stores, not something more powerful like dynamite. and they believed they were carried in the scene in dark nylon bags and set off by timers. the area was checked twice for bombs but there was no security screening. >> because there is unrestricted access to the racecourse, simply because it's 28 miles long, people can come and go and bring items in and out. >> reporter: authorities searched t
was used as the delivery device for the explosives. law enforcement sources tell nbc news that the bombs were built to act like homemade ieds. and take a look at what remains of the black duffle back used to conceal the device. sources tell nbc news the bombs appeared to include a battery pack and the "boston globe" reporting investigators recovered part of a circuit board at the scene. the bombs were also packed with shrapnel to maximize damage and a black powder known as low explosive. in other words, the device was not capable of creating a massive blast wave, instead, the main purpose was simply to maim and to injure fans at the event. photos obtained by whdh in boston showed the area where the bomb was left moments before and moments after the detonation. the fbi is looking at these photos and others like them for clues as to who placed the bombs and when they may have placed them. there is precedent for devices like these. in 2004, the fbi sent out a memo on the use of homemade pressure cooker bombs. al qaeda's online magazine gave instructions for making them just last month. and
on the investigation i'm joined by nbc news national investigative correspondent michael isikoff. a good sunday morning to you, mi michael. what are we hearing about the time line when tsarnaev may be charged and the charges he is facing? >> reporter: well, we could see charges against tsarnaev as early as today. i know that federal prosecutors are were preparing them yesterday. actually, we've been told they might come late yesterday afternoon or even last night. they didn't. so it's possible we may now see them this morning. now what that would consist of is not an actual indictment but a criminal complaint backed up by an affidavit most likely from an fbi agent that should have addition additional details about the evidence that the government hases on tsarnaev, where he bought the parts of the bomb, what actual -- we may learn where he purchased his weapons. other evidence that ties him direct directly to the bombing. and it could illuminate information we've all been looking for about how the bombs were made, when they were made, where they were made. we don't know how much the fbi knows at this p
. older brother, suspect number one was killed last night in a shootout with police. nbc news reports that at that shootout, 200 rounds were exchanged. and before that happened, he and his brother killed a security officer at m.i.t. held a man captive after carjacking him. and severely wounded another police officer. the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, was 26. nbc news learned he spent six months last year outside of the country. authorities are still piecing together where he went and what he did during that time. there are many questions tonight. joining me to help answer them is nbc investigative correspondent michael isikoff and former director of the national counterterrorism center michael leiter. and former fbi profiler clint van zandt. let me start with michael leiter. the other day, it seems like a year ago, two, three days ago you, had this sense, professional instinct, if you will, that this killer, one of the two bombers, was a local. tell me how you came to that assessment. >> well, chris, my take -- >> he is a local. >> he is a local and he's got deep ties to boston. a
from al qaeda elements in iran. nbc news has learned from both u.s. and canadian authorities that trains originating in the u.s. were among those scouted as possible targets. the investigation called "operation smooth" has been ongoing for the last year with help from the fbi and u.s. department for homeland security. canadian authorities emphasize the plot was still in its planning stages and the public was never in any imminent danger but the suspects had both the capacity and intent to follow through. officials say there is no connection to these suspects and the boston marathon bombing. >> stephanie, thank you so much. stephanie gosk with that. >>> bill karins joining us now. may is just a week away, but don't tell the snow falling, right? in colorado. >> don't show it. people don't want to see this anymore. >> i've got to do it, my friend. three denver highways closed last night because of icy conditions. more of that is expected this afternoon. into the afternoon, actually. bill karins? >> i want to see people on the beach in california. you wanted to see the snow. >> t

would be near impossible. i'm jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, jodi. let's bring you up to date. no suspect has been arrested yet. earlier today some news outlets mistakenly reported there had been an arrest. nbc news did not. an 8-year-old girl was friends with the youngest victim of monday's bombing. that must have been a tough day for that little girl. >> reporter: it really was. this was personal. 8-year-oldava grelish lost a friend this week. 8-year-old martin richard was there with his family and he was killed. >> he was very nice and generous. >> reporter:ava tells me tag was their favorite game. this 8 year old texted her father saying she wanted to be there to see the person suspected of being her buddy. >> what kind of feelings were you having? >> mad and scared. >> reporter: explain that to me. >> when i first heard i was mad at him. i don't know who would do that. i don't know what he was thinking at the time but it is really heartbreaking. >> reporter: when you say scared, explain that. >> i was actually shaking and crying at the same time. i was texting my
of its stake in nbc universal, and we have some breaking news, i believe. i'll go to beck owe this. we apparently have breaking news and not sure where we're going for this, but it does -- the affiliate in boston. i take it back. art hogan is standing by at lazard in boston and the events of today have shut down a wide swath of activity and this is not boston, this is not business as usual in boston. at this point about a million point are asked to be sheltering in place where they are by the police. we spoke with art hogan earlier -- >> instead of going to art, the -- those are important -- ibm's down 10 at this point and the futures are now, they were up -- instead of going to art, no offense, but we are now down mostly because of ibm being down ten points after a weak earnings report. microsoft is up a full point after reporting results, but -- we've been watching everything that's happening. >> the fluid story, we thought we had some breaking news. >> we're trying to watch on both points as we approach the opening of the market which is just about 12 minutes away. earlier this morn
both in his own country and in the international community. i want to bring in now, nbc news senior executive producer, investigative unit, richard esposito from new york. richard, first of all you've been coordinating a lot of the breaking developments here, all of the breaking developments and we've been very cautious all along. not to speculate beyond what we know. but what we do now know significantly as roger and david here and secretary ridge are pointing out. is that the older brother did travel outside of the united states. what to your knowledge are they now looking for in terms of any kind of foreign connection to this terror attack here? >> well that's exactly what they're going to start with. is that he did travel. at the moment, we don't know what happened when he traveled. so what will they look for? they will look for the travel pattern. new associates that he might have established while traveling. contact with radicalized individuals that he might have, that might have encouraged his travel even here with radicalized people here. we don't know that these are jihadis
with those new charges filed against dzhokhar tsarnaev. pete william is nbc's chief justice correspondent. pete, we have charges. >> we do. couple things about the charges. both of the two counts filed against dzhokhar tsarnaev could bring the death penalty. they're capital cases. and interestingly as you well know the commonwealth of mt massachusetts does not have the death penalty. if anybody is going to seek the death penalty in this case, it would be the federal charge. we're a long way from there. the attorney general has to decide that. i think he would be the youngest person against whom the government would do that if it did. but it could if it wanted to. in terms of what the evidence shows, according to the fbi, it's partly the photographic evidence and partly the forensic evidence. as for the photographs, they give a long discussion of what they say is a key piece of the evidence from the second bombing scene. and this is taken from the restaurant right in front of where the bomb was placed. and according to this video, you see dzhokhar tsarnaev come into the frame. he's wearing
, justice correspondent for nbc news. clint van zandt, msnbc political analyst, and phillip mudd, former cia analyst, former deputy director of the fbi national security branch. he's author of the book "takedown." i wonder, i know we're filled in this country with strange thinking people, truthers, birthers that have off the wall theories. i don't know how anybody could look at this evidence presented so far and have some other theory of the case besides the indictment, itself. >> no, it's really coming together. i mean, there's -- as terrible as this case is and was, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of heavy lifting. we've got the two primary individuals. it's obvious that they had hands on the devices. the pieces we don't have, chris, are where was their inspiration? where did they get the guidance? who taught them how to build the bombs? >> why is that important? why is that important to -- is that important to prosecuting? i mean, what difference does it make why they did it if they did it? i'm being tough here. when you look at all this evidence -- >> no. >> go ahead. >> no. it's --
the phone. in the newsroom, kimberly tere, nbc bay area news. >> kimberly, thank you. >>> and as kim mentioned, hundreds of people gathered at the boston marathon finish line today to pay their respects. and tomorrow the governor of massachusetts is asking people across the state to observe a moment of silence at the time the first bomb went off, 2:50 in the afternoon. it will be followed by the are ining of the bells in boston and elsewhere in that state as well. stay with us for continuing coverage of the bombing investigation. right now on, there is helicopter video of the moments leading up to the suspect's arrest. >>> new at 11:00, police are investigating a mugging and shooting in rockridge area. it highlights rock rink's problem with violent crime and it's reinvigorating the debate over what to do about it. monte francis is live in oakland with details. monte? >> reporter: good evening. people who live in the rockridge area are used to the occasional break-in or robbery, but they say it's been a number of years since someone has been shot there. still, they say
some of the news coming out of this thing. we'll rely on nbc news. they have a face, joe. they do not have a name. but they have a face of someone who was seen on the video leaving the scene of the crime with a black bag. now, what does that mean? is that a person of interest, they have a face are they trying to get his identity in walk me through how you think or what you think that means. >> what it means is they're taking that piece of video depending upon the nature and quality of the camera that it came from, they're running it through a super computer that has algorithms in it. they're enhancing the face and attempting to make the kind of picture that will make it possible to make an identification. they will make it eventually public and ask people if there is anyone who knows this person. they probably are not very far away from that right now. >> and do you think they're waiting -- one reason the news conference is held back because they're waiting for that, joe? >> i don't believe so. i think what's going on up in boston right now has been a nightmare for federal and loc
-year-old suspects tomorrow. in san jose, kris sanchez, nbc bay area news. >> such an emotional story. thank you. during today's news conference, the pott family also questioned the officials at saratoga high school. after they were cited for misdemeanors in the case last december, they urged the school to expel those students. they removed them from the football team but did not expel them. saratoga high school is on spring break and with he cannot get anyone from the school or district to comment on the family's statements. >>> the debate does continue. should the teenage defendants be tried as adults. we uncovered laws that could prevent it from happening. we don't even know the d.a.'s plans. that story tonight on our 6:30 newscast. >>> to developing weather. very windy outside making for a tough commute across bay area bridges this evening. >> wind gusts topping 50 miles per hour. you see the american flag flying briskly above the rooftop there. meteorologist rob mayeda is tracking the latest from our weather center. >> strongest winds of the day coming in within the last hour. it
as a public memorial and mourning continues here. jay gray, nbc news, boston. >>> an online effort is under way to buy a new boat for the man who first spotted 1-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev holed up in his back year. a bay area podcaster is leading the charge. bob redell talks-of- talked to him today. he's in the newsroom. the question is, why is he so passionate about this? >> reporter: marla, that's what richard bliss does for a living, helps people replace their dreams or recover property. he produces a podcast, teaching people how to harness the internet to raise money for projects and internet ideas. when he heard the boat was riddled with bullets last fry night with the boston bombing suspect hidden inside, he thought why not help fund a new boat for the guy. he set up a web page, podcast his plea. within 48 hours, within that amount of time, he raised $600. >> i was surprised, i got hate mail. i was surprised no deed goes unpunished. part of it was the misunderstanding that somehow i was taking away from the real victims, the victims with horrendous loss. instead, it was, no, this is
device. the ap reporting, nbc news reported other items were found left behind. we have not confirmed whether they were, in fact, explosive or not but we know out of precautionary measures boston police rendered them safe. do we know from boston police whether they have secured an area and are no longer concerned about the presence of secondary explosive devices? >> reporter: we do not know that as of now. there will be a press conference coming up in 30 minutes where we're expected to find out more about that. we know they were treating anything left on the ground, any package as suspicious. as can you imagine, it's a marathon. people are dropping things left and right. then when the explosions happened, they're running away, and dropping whatever is on them so they were treating everything as suspicious. we do believe there was potentially a third incendiary device and that that was safely detonated. there was also a fire at the jfk library but right now it's not clear what caused that fire. they are saying there were no explosions happening at that library. >> nbc's katy tur, thank
are in critical condition. several people required amputations and doctors say more are likely. nbc news justice correspondent pete williams is standing by. i am just reading information that you put in regarding the components of this bomb and what authorities believe was used to make the explosives. what can you tell me? >> they say they were crudely made. that doesn't mean that they weren't powerful and they were. they were made with gunpowder, bbs and ball bearings packed inside a pressure cooker. let me point to a picture from a homeland security bulletin. we're going to get in real tight on these little pots down here. this is what pressure cookers look like. give it a second to focus and see how much tighter we can get. these are what pressure cookers look like in case you haven't seen them. these are rather inexpensive pressure cookers. in case you've not ever dealt with one. a pot with a cover on it that you can make basically air tight and food cooks faster. and then for at least a decade, they've been used to make bombs around the world. so inside is the explosive and the authorities
. video shows is someone setting down a bag near the bomb location. authorities have told nbc news there are solid leads, but no arrest has been made yet. we've heard that now from numerous sources, including the fbi. no one has been specifically identified. we are waiting, however, for a joint news conference in boston at 5:00 p.m., which we believe will be led by the fbi. just a few minutes ago, the fbi released this statement saying, contrary to widespread reporting, there have been no arrests made in connection with the boston marathon attack. over the past day and a half, there have been a number of press reports from unofficial sources that have been inaccurate. since these stories often have unintentional consequences, we ask the media, particularly at this early stage in the investigation, to exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate official channels before reporting. >> and you've seen this back and forth in the market all day, which we will get to in the final hour of trade on this tuesday. but first, things are moving fast into the investiga
'm lester holt, nbc news. >>> i'm mara schiavocampo in new york with break news related to the boston marathon bombing. police say that one of the two suspects has been killed in a shootout with law enforcement. the second suspect remains at large and is armed and dangerous. they are warning the public to use extreme caution going as far as to tell massachusetts residents to stay indoors and to not open their door unless they can confirm that the person on the other side is a police officer. you are looking at the picture of that man. suspect number two, who is at large at this time. police saying, quote, we believe this to be a terrorist. we believe this to be a man who has come to kill people. a number of developments have taken place over the last few hours. this is a very fast-moving story. i want to go now to nbc news correspondent michael isikoff, who is live on the ground in watertown, massachusetts, with the very latest on this developing story. michael, what can you tell us? all right. it appears we don't have michael isikoff ready. but we're looking at video of what happened
's a lot less safe. so hopefully they're through it all. and what we also know, according to nbc news, is that it is just the one person that they're looking for. they thought for a while that they were looking for some accomplices and so on. this doesn't mean that they've caught anybody. it just means that they know who they're looking for, dzhokar tsarnaev, and -- >> tsarnaev. >> thank you maria, tsarnaev. but they're looking for him, and the hope is, the thinking is, and the hope is that he is still here in watertown. >> the thinking in terms of going door to door, scott, i guess it could be either, you know, tsarnaev is holding somebody hostage and hiding in their home or someone's hiding him in their home. they're going door to door in that region, this is like a 20-block radius, correct? >> that's about right. this is a town of about 32,000 people. it's fairly densely populated. so they do have a lot to look for and as we were looking at most of the homes, they're close together, from the areas that we've seen, a lot of single family homes, almost all single family homes. there'
